We will also require a central repository for files and other types of miscellaneous knowledge objects, like videos that we've downloaded but don't want to publish online publicly. Hence, we're looking into the XFRocks Attachment Store as a way to centralize attachments. It's my understanding that we can either store our files within a hosting directory or via Amazon Web Services (AWS), and I've got the following questions.
- Are there any limits to the type of files I can serve within XF? For example, if I have an .avi or .mp4 or .flv video files, will I be able to view these videos via a discussion thread?
- If I store the files on AWS, will I be able to view and organize them via another front end tool... something with file manager capabilites?
- I'm looking at having to store approximately 3TB of data, with approximately 250-500GB of traffic every month once the files are initially uploaded. Any one here have experience with the costs I can expect from AWS? And will this traffic impact traffic to and from my webhosting provider, or is this traffic to/from AWS routed differently
